The timber should be re-coated with a teak coloured preservative every year to ensure the maximum life span of the product. Oil based coatings are the best as they tend to repel water before it penetrates the timber fibres. Recoating is best undertaken on a warm dry day or even better after a dry spell when the timber has had time to dry enough to absorb the coating you are applying.
Here’s a bit of a tip. Get yourself an atomizer spray. (The sort you do your indoor plant leaves with). Most DIY shops sell what’s called a waterproofing agent. Thompson’s Water seal is a brand name but “B&Q” do their own brand. Fill the atomizer with it and spray over the external surfaces of the product a couple of times a year. It’s really quick and easy. Don’t forget to wear appropriate mask and gloves. Follow the Health and safety instructions on the container.
